The Bagon Community Day is already behind us and now trainers look forward to the Pokemon Go Community Day in May.

May Community Day date announced

Niantic have taken the unprecedented step of announcing a whole host of community day dates in advance. Previously community days would be announced on a monthly basis.

The change is likely in response to Pokemon Go trainers complaining about not having enough time to schedule time off work to make the most of them.

The May Community Day will take place on May 19. The question still remains, however, who will the headlining Pokemon be?

Bagon was the last headliner of a community day in April…

May headline Pokemon

If Niantic’s well established pattern holds true then it will almost certainly be a starter Pokemon. On odd months, Niantic have been making their way through the starter Pokemon from Gen 1 to most recently Gen 3’s Treecko.

The pattern has also followed specific types, namely in each generation going in the order of grass, fire and water-type. This also aligns with the Pokemon’s Pokedex number.

Therefore, as we are currently going through Gen 3 and we have just had the grass-type starter Treecko, it seems very likely that Torchic will be next.

Torchic Pokemon Go

The fire-type Torchic is a favorite among Pokemon Go trainers. While the little chick Pokemon has been previously available, it’s harder to catch than most due to its higher tendency to flee.

The May Community Day will allow players to finally get an abundance of Torchics and get its final evolved form of Blaziken. Unfortunately, its base stats don’t really have a place in the Pokemon Go meta, though.

Torchic, the expected headliner for the Pokemon Go May Community Day…

Other contenders

Niantic would have to break the pattern that has been established since community days were introduced, for the May headliner not to be Torchic.

Theoretically, they could throw a spanner in the works and go for the Gen 3 water-type starter, Mudkip. The only real reason to do that though, would be to keep Pokemon Go trainers guessing.

Elsewhere, Pokemon such as Ralts, Gible and Slakoth are expected to headline at some point during the coming months.

Gen 6 is finally coming to Pokemon Go in December, and there’s a special Kalos Celebration Event to mark the occasion. Here’s how to complete the tasks and get those rewards.

Since its debut in 2016, Pokemon Go has gradually introduced species from the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Alola, and Galar regions.

Now, it’s the turn of Kalos, the region that first appeared in Pokemon X & Y on the Nintendo 3DS.

To celebrate their arrival, Niantic have launched a special event that runs for a limited time and will see the likes of Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie, Bunnelby, Fletchling, Litleo, and Noibat appear more frequently in the wild to increase your chances of catching them.
